I believe they have coincidence or circumstance.

But they're still fun :)

Shell fish!

Some I believe, some not. Right now, my long haired Chi has the thickest, longest coat he's ever had, which leads me to believe it will be a hard winter.

I have eaten fish sticks with milk lots of times. So have my kids! None of us got sick. I've never even heard of this Old Wives Tale. shrugs

I look at wooly worms to see how long the middle stripe is to predict the winter weather. There is speculation that it means nothing but it is fun to wonder, do they really know?

Food poisoning can take up to 12 hours to kick in. It may not have been the fish sticks....

If it was the fish sticks, it's not because you mixed them with milk.

I have never heard that ... fish sticks and milk. That's a new one especially since fish is really tasty in a cream sauce. 

Chicken soup really does help a cold. 

Going outside with wet hair will make you sick. My MIL used to get so annoyed when I would go out right after taking a shower in the winter AND to make it worse ... I didn't dry my hair!! Yes, wet hair, outside, in the winter. We live in NC ... it really doesn't get THAT cold here. 

IF you raise your arms over your head while pregnant, you will strangle your baby.

Anyone have any hairy palms????

Here are 9 that are actually true ...

I've had 4 black cats in my lifetime, I've broken countless mirrors, I can't tell you how often I've accidentally swept my feet with the broom...

No bad luck here!
